Dark honey taste, little to no maltiness but with a taste of the chocolate like the Keemuns. Tends to be thick in the mouth and very dark brown amber for first couple of steepings, and thinner and lighter colored after. No harshness but a deep flavor over all, probably due to the prevalence of tips. As enjoyable as my favorite Golden Monkey. Definitely hits the “relax” command button in my brain. Bought an entire small tin, so am glad I was right in my suspicions re this tea. Fujians seem to be a theme with me.

Although not new to tea in general, I am new to the world of GOOD tea. So far, I prefer black teas — green teas seem tasteless to me, but I’m willing to be convinced.
